Special Educational Needs

Annesley Primary and Nursery School is a mainstream setting which caters for children aged 4–11 years.

Our school believes high quality teaching should be adapted and personalised to meet the individual needs of the majority of children. 

The SEND report below outlines how we cater for children who have additional SEND needs.

Our SEND report sets out the ways in which we support children and families with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND).  It outlines what you should do if you have any concerns about your child's needs, or if your child has a disability and needs support.

At Annesley, we make provision for pupils with different types of Special Education Needs and Disabilities including:

  • Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH)
  • Sensory Impairment
  • Hearing Impairment
  • Dyslexia

We are an inclusive school, and we will make provision for other needs where we can, we will make all reasonable adjustments including training for all appropriate staff.  

Our Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCo) is Mrs Tara Whitehouse.

You are more than welcome to make an appointment with Mrs Whitehouse to discuss any concerns that you may have about your child's needs at anytime.  Please contact Mrs Fox or Mrs Collins at the school office to arrange an appointment: 01623 468806. 

You can also assess the school's Local Offer below.  The purpose of the Local Offer is to enable parents/carers and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how they can access them.  Our SENDCo liaises closely with service providers in the Nottinghamshire County Council locality to bring you up-to-date information. Parents/carers and young people can also use the link to find information and advice on how to access them directly.
